PREFACE 

Lenoir, North Carolina 

CITY OF LENOIR, COUNTY SEAT OF CALDWELL COUNTY 

PREFACE 

The City of Lenoir is situated in the western Piedmont section of 
North Carolina in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is the 
southern gateway to the Blue Ridge Parkway and to the Blowing Rock- 
Grandfather Mountain area. It is principally an industrial city with the 
manufacture of furniture its leading industry, being the largest in the 
entire United States. 

Between 1857 and 1900, however, Lenoir was known as a summer 
resort and had many summer visitors, while all of those who went to 
Blowing Rock left the train at Lenoir and drove the 23 miles by road up 
the mountain in horse drawn hacks. The distance is now only 20 miles. 

INDUSTRY 

It was during this period, however, that the manufacture of furniture 
first started in Lenoir, since there were many skilled cabinet makers in 
this area, the descendants of skilled artisans who had been brought 
over from England by the wealthy plantation owners in Happy Valley 
and the Yadkin Valley to build the furniture for the homes built in this 
valley shortly after the Revolution. Several of these beautiful old 
homes, containing the hand-made furniture, are still standing and in use 
by the descendants of the families who built them. 

By 1900 Lenoir was already well-known as a furniture manufacturing 
center. This industry has increased steadily until at the present time 
there are eighteen large furniture manufacturing plants, two veneer 
plants, two mirror plants, one paper box and packing materials concern, 
and several other concerns that supply materials for the furniture in- 
dustry. In all, there are some 50 different industries operated in Lenoir 
employing more than 9,000 persons. Of these the furniture industry 
alone employs more than 4,000 persons, a majority of these being men. 
The payroll for the furniture industry amounts to approximately $150,000 
a week and the total industrial payroll is approximately $350,000 a week. 
There are also eight cotton spinning mills in Lenoir and the Lenoir area 
which employes some 2,000 persons, mostly women, also a large plant 
making work clothing. There are also hosiery mills, machine shops, 
flour mills, sawmills, miiiwork plants and other miscellaneous industries.

PREFACE 

PREFACE 

(Continued from Page Seven) 

POPULATION 

The population of Lenoir was 7,603 within the city limits according 
to the 1940 census, while the population of Caldwell county in 1940 
was 35,795. The population of the two townships in which Lenoir is 
located was 18,119 in 1940. Accordingly, the population of Lenoir and 
the areas immediately surrounding it is conservatively estimated at 
approximately 15,000 persons now, while the trading area is approx- 
imately between 60,000 and 65,000. 

The difference between the census population and the population 
living in and adjacent to Lenoir is due to the fact that many of those 
employed in the industrial plants live outside the city limits or on small 
farms out in the county. 

The increase in population of Lenoir from 1930 to 1940 was 14 per 
cent according to the 1940 census, while the population in Caldwell 
county during the same period increased 27.8 per cent. 

TRANSPORTATION 

Lenoir is served by the Carolina and Northwestern Railway, a sub- 
sidiary of the Southern Railway System, extending from Lenoir to 
Chester, S. C, where it connects with the Seaboard Airline Railway. 
The C & N W also intersects the main East-West line of the Southern 
Railway in Hickory, 19 miles south, and the main Washington-Atlanta 
line of the Southern in Gastonia, some 50 miles south of Lenoir. In 
addition, Lenoir is served by five hard-surfaced state and federal high- 
ways which afford frequent bus and freight transportation. Six large 
trucking concerns operate out of Lenoir either as common carriers or 
contract haulers. Regular bus service to all points in the United States 
is provided by the Atlantic Greyhound lines and the Queen City Coach 
Company. Through rail passenger service to New York, Chicago and 
all other points is available from Lenoir and Hickory over the Southern 
Railway System. 

TAXES 

The tax rate in the city of Lenoir for all purposes is $1.55 for each 
$100 valuation, for which $1.20 is for city purposes and 35 cents for 
school purposes. The county tax rate is 90 cents on each $100 valuation 
for all county purposes. Property is assessed at approximately 75 per 
cent of its real value for taxation purposes for both the city and county. 
No state property tax levied in North Carolina. 

FIRE PROTECTION 

Due to the fact that Lenoir has one of the most modern and well 
equipped volunteer fire departments in the United States, fire losses 
have been unusually low with a very low fire insurance rate. The fire

(Conlinued from Page 9) 



loss in Lenoir amounted to only $18,770.00 in 1947 and in 1948 to 
$12,110.00. 

WATER SUPPLY 

Lenoir has a modern water plant with a pumping capacity of ap- 
proximately 1,500,000 gallons a day although the city only uses between 
800,000 and 1,000,000 gallons a day including industrial uses. This 
water supply is derived from several mountain streams fed by natural 
springs with the result that the water is extremely soft and unusually 
pure. 

UTILITIES 

The electric power supplied to Lenoir and Caldwell county by the 
Duke Power Company which with its network of hydro-electric and 
steam power plants is equipped to deliver an almost unlimited amount 
of electricity for either domestic or commercial use. Two of Duke Power 
Company's largest hydro-electric plants are located in Caldwell county 
while another is located in another county. The rates for power in 
Lenoir and Caldwell county are among the lowest in the United States. 

Calwell county is one of the most highly electrified counties in North 
Carolina with 945 miles of rural electric lines with more than 5,000 rural 
customers. 

Gas for cooking, refrigerators and heating is available from the 
Piedmont Gas Company which is now supplying approximately 21,500,- 
000 cubic feet and which has a capacity for about 50,000,000 cubic feet 
per month. Rates are reasonable and decline in proportion to the amount 
used. 

BANKS 

Lenoir is served by two commercial banks, one industrial bank and 
two building and loan associations. The two banks have combined 
resources of more than $12,850,000 while the two building and loan 
associations have combined resources of approximately $4,300,000. 

LABOR SUPPLY 

An adequate supply of native white labor is available in Lenoir and 
Caldwell county and is more than 99 per cent native Blue Ridge Moun- 
tain stock of pre-Revolution origin. These people are intelligent, hard 
working and are not inclined to float from one section to another. Most 
of them own their homes or farms. Their forefathers have lived in this 
mountain area for more than a century. This supply of native born white 
labor with intelligence and ability is the outstanding asset cf Lenoir and 
this entire region. 

CIVIC CLUBS 

Among the various civic clubs in Lenoir are the Lions Club, Kiwanis 
Club, Rotary Club, Optimists Club, Woman's Club, Business and Pro- 



PREFACE ! 

fessional Women's Club, Garden Club, Lenoir Service Club, the Mozart 
Music Club, the Lenoir Music Club, Woodmen of the World, Knights of 
Pythias, and the Masonic Order. The Rotary Club meets at 12:30 each

The Lions Club meets the first and third Mondays at 6:30 P. M. in the 
Carlheim Hotel and the Optimists Club each Monday at 6:30 P. M. at 
the Optimist Club House. 

SCHOOLS 
The Lenoir school system is composed of five elementary schools 
and two high schools with the total enrollment of more than 2,500 and 
with approximately 500 in the high schools. The schools have a nine 
months term and 12 grades. There are 24 rural schools in the county 
system with an enrollment of approximately 8,000. These schools also 
have a nine months term and 12 grades. Nearly 5,500 of the children 
in the rural schools are transported to and from school every day in 60 
school buses which travel an average of 1,800 miles every day. 

CHURCHES 

There are 18 churches in Lenoir, 12 of these for the white congrega- 
tion and 6 for the colored congregation, representing all denominations. 

HOSPITALS 

Lenoir has three modern hospitals containing the most modern 
equipment and staffed by able doctors and nurses. 

CLIMATE 

Situated as it is in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lenoir 
has an unusually mild climate the year around. The average annual 
temperature is 56.5 degrees with an average summer temperature of 73.7 
degrees and a fall average temperature of 57.2 degrees. The average 
winter temperature is 38.9 degrees and the spring temperature is 56.2 
degrees. 

Although the altitude in Lenoir is only 1,186 feet, within 21 miles it 
is possible to attain an altitude of almost 4,000 feet, while Grandfather 
Mountain in the northwestern edge of the county attains an altitude of 
5,964 feet. 

RECREATION 

Those seeking outdoor recreation can find an almost unlimited 
amount in Lenoir or in this general area. There is a nine-hole golf 
course in Lenoir, now being expanded into an 18-hole Donald Ross 
Course, and several hundred miles of extensive trout and bass fishing 
waters in the county. An 18-hole golf course is available in Blowing 
Rock at an altitude of almost 4,000 feet. 

For additional information concerning Lenoir and Caldwell County

This Publication 
Is The Product of a Member of 




— thus assuring you the ultimate service that skill and care can produce in 
the way of City Directories or other reference media, and providing protection 
against fraudulent advertising schemes which operate under the name of 
Directories. 

The following "Standards of Practice," adopted at the inception of the 
Association of North American Directory Publishers in 1898, and strictly ad- 
hered to over the years, is your guarantee of satisfactory Directory Service. 

The publisher of a Directory should dedicate his best efforts to the cause 
of business uplift and social service, and to this end pledges himself: 

1. To consider, first, the interest of the user of the book. 

2. To subscribe to and work for truth, honesty and accuracy in all de- 
partments. 

3. To avoid confusing duplication of listings, endeavoring to classify 
every concern under the one heading that best describes it, and to treat 
additional listings as advertising, to be charged for at reguar rates. 

4. To increase public knowledge of what Directories contain; to study 
public needs and make Directories to supply them; to revise and standardize 
methods and classifications, so that what is wanted may be most easily found, 
and the Directory be made to serve its fullest use as a business and social 
reference book and director of buyer and seller. 

5. To decline any advertisement which has a tendency to mislead or 
which does not conform to business integrity. 

6. To solicit subscriptions and advertising solely upon the merits of the 
publications. 

7. To avoid misrepresentation by statement or inference regarding cir- 
culation, placing the test of reference publicity upon its accessibility to seek- 
ers, rather than on the number of copies sold. 

8. To co-operate with approved organizations and individuals engaged 
in creative advertising work. 

9. To avoid unfair competition. 

10. To determine what is the highest and largest function of Directories 
in public service, and then to strive in every legitimate way to promote that 
function. 

$100 Seward will be paid by the Association of North American Directory 
Publishers for the arrest and conviction of any person or persons engaged in 
the publishing, collecting or canvassing for any fraudulent or fake directories.
